Men move furniture into a new home which is identical to the dozens of small, red brick houses surrounding it. A woman stands outside one of the houses. Looks like a (lower) middle-class housing development.

Nice image of a cylinder container holding gas. It is silver with red checkers at the top with what looks like a little water tower at the top. Small airplanes move around it.

Good shot of large trucks being loaded with long links of piping by a crane. Beautiful storm clouds move by.
